Tansy Mustard Flowers by Phlox 1811

On April 7th along TX 71 about 10 miles east of Llano I photographed a wildflower that’s commoner out there than it is in Austin, where I’ve seldom encountered it. The wildflower in question is tansy-mustard, Descurainia pinnata.

The contrasting purple in the background is from some conveniently out-of-focus phlox flowers that were near the base of the taller mustard. What a different way to portray yellow than the last post, don’t you think?
